Rating Definition:

Very good. The barrel shows a mixed brass patina and the tang and lock show a dark gray with pitting. Mild handling marks overall. The stock is good as repaired, with mended cracks and filled patches, along with pressure dents and chipping. Silver shows a fine dark color in the protected areas, with light scratches. Mechanically fine.
